new jersey governor chris christie, because he was setting the bar high for mr. romney. listen. >> he's going to come in wednesday night, lay out his vision for america, he's going to contrast what his view is with what the president's record is, the president's view for the future and this whole race is going to be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> upside down is what he says. in just a few minutes we're going to be talking about wednesday night's debate and the president's preparations with brad woodhouse, communications director for the democratic national committee. first some of the other stories making news in d.c. getting ready for wednesday's debate coverage is john berman. hey, john, good morning. >> we're doing debate prep just like the candidates here in washington. start overseas, soledad. the taliban taking responsibility for an attack in eastern afghanistan that killed at least 14 people. civilians, police, and three nato soldiers. officials say the suicide bomber targeted a joint patrol using a motorcycle packed with explosives. this attack comes a day after

that aren't true. zpl you've got to love chris christie. sometimes, if you're going to call someone a liar, you can just call them a liar. this is a preview of what we're going to be hearing from mitt romney on wednesday. that's what some say. will it happen and will that attack work? good to seyou both. >> what's happening. >> good to be here! is he going to come out, ryan, and say, look, there you go. that famous there you go again. there's another lie or no? >> i think it's unpredictable. i'm not sure if the debate is the right place to do it. after the paul ryan speech, you have the obama campaign referring to the lies in paul ryan's speech and that's echoed by president obama's allies in the media. when you don't have the romney campaign's response robustly. for example, president obama has been running ads claiming that mitt romney's going to race taxes on the middle class. now, mitt romney has never made that claim. this is coming from a report making all kinds of arguments. and he's made all kinds of a assumptions that the romney campaign has rejected. also puts harvey rosen, you c
and republican governor chris christie didn't get the memo. s.o.p. for predebate chatter is to lower expectations for your guy by raising expectations for the other guy, like this -- >> president obama's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. >> reporter: because this is a bipartisanly accepted strategy, like this -- >> we've expected all along that governor romney will have a good night. he's prepared more than any candidate in history, showing himself to be a very good debater. >> reporter: since you are supporting romney, you are supporting him, right? then you also need to lower the stakes for wednesday's first of three presidential debates. like this -- >> frankly, i can't remember the last time there was one of these comments that grabbed everybody's attention because, frankly, the candidates are too well-prepared. they're well-scripted. >> reporter: and like this -- >> more importantly, i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. >> reporter: but definitely governor christie, definitely not like this. >>
barack obama to hit knockout punches. but according to chris christie of new jersey he says this could be a game changer. >> wednesday night is the restart of this campaign. i think you will see those numbers move right back in the other direction. showers day morning the entire narrative of this race will change. >> reporter: obviously chris christie did not get the memo from the romney campaign that you are supposed to build up he can takes for your opponent. >> i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. president obama is a very gifted speaker. the man has been on the national stage or many years. he has done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> reporter: president obama has done this 8 times. governor romney continues to hit president obama on foreign policy. a new op-ed in the wal "wall stt journal" will be about domestic policy. but governor romney is planning a new speech. the following two presidential debates will include that. megyn: meantime president barack obama is in henderson, nevada. some say the city
election, jeb bush, governor chris christie of new jersey, they mate maybe this isn't the best year for me for a lot of reasons. if one of them was the nominee and two bring the two wings of the party together you might have a real race but they had such a weak field. >> that would be a choice election where reasonable people would try to decide between the two candidates. this one is not a hard choice. last month when missouri senate candidate todd akin made his comments about legitimate rape, "time" wrote that the comments -- and the no-nothing idiocy of the plurality of the base. todd akin is not an outlier, he's a symptom of the disease. governor romney, he knows about as much about science as anybody i know. he's educated. he's got a degree in harvard in law, in business. he could do a little studying about climate change and understand it's a real challenge. and yet he just plays this know-nothing view of i don't know anything about that stuff. he does. >> he kind of reminds me of john boehner trying to preside over that house caucus of people who are fire breathing and wants the fir
republican governor chris christie for refusing to release almost all of the $300 million in federal funds that the state was given to help all the troubled homeowners in the garden state. joining me now, democratic state assemblyman and deputy speaker gary scherer who sponsored legislation to combat the foreclosure crisis. this has to be frustrating to you, $300 million? >> extraordinarily frightening since only $4 million of the $300 million has been committed. we received, alex, those funds over a year ago, we had 58,000 foreclosures or those three months late or more on their mortgage. we have a way to correct the swas and the money is not being spent. >> i'm sure you've not been silenced about this. tell me what the governor is saying. >> that's the problem and the big problem and it's the reason why we're going to be having the special assembly hearing on the subject to understand more. we're not getting any information back from the governor. the governor when he ran for office a if few years ago spoke about transparency and open government. we're in the seeing that transparency now
or break time in a good or bad way. chris christie believes and i will quote here, i've seen mitt romney do this before. he's going to come in, he's going to lay out his vision for america, contrast his view with the president's record and it's going to be the president's views for the future. this whole race is going to be turned upside down come thursday morning. boom. job done. >> that's why people love chris christie. because he tells something at least vaguely approaching the truth which is that whether or not romney actually succeeds in pulling something like that off, that's close to what he needs right now. if you listen to what paul ryan says in public and interviews and what romney surrogates say, they'll downplay expectations and say obama's a great orator and so on but if you talk to romney people in private, and they have been quoted in background pieces in the last few days, they'll say look, we're losing, this is a good chance to change the dynamic so he needs to step up. >> charles blow, how does he step up? because there is this conundrum. he's not very likeable to the elec
dives into debate prep with new jersey governor chris christie, sunday morning right here on abc's "this week." >>> but we move on tonight and to a tragedy that unfolded as viewers were watching on live television late this afternoon. a car chase, police in hot pursuit of a driver and then the driver taking his life. we are not going to show the moment, but here is what led up to it, and the debate that immediately followed. here's abc's dan harris. >> now he's off the freeway. >> reporter: this afternoon, fox news was doing live coverage of a carjacking suspect fleeing police in phoenix. >> i'm just not sure about this. >> reporter: as the man pulls over on a dirt road, the anchor, shepard smith, sounds wary. >> this makes me a little nervous, i got to tell you. >> reporter: the suspect, on foot now, runs and stumbles, gun in hand. >> it's always possible the guy could be on something. >> reporter: at this point, we're going to pause the video, as the man ends his own life. on fox, however, they did not cut away in time. >> get off it. get off it! get off it! >> reporter: after a hastil
